Brentford Defending as a Team


There were many positives from the Rotherham game and a few question marks remain over the defence, however what might have gone unnoticed was that Brentford as a team defended from the front.

Photographs during the game show Jota and Sawyers often in central defensive positions. Sawyers in fact seemingly outjumping the excellent John Egan. Sawyers work rate was excellent throughout as was his positional sense. 0000731800007325

Jota Scores One of The most unusual penalties of all time


The sequence of photos shows Jota scoring an injury time penalty to put Brentford 3-2 ahead having conceded an 87th minute Rotherham equaliser making it 2-2. A hand ball decision was given against Semi Ajayi and the first photograph below is of the young Brentford debutant, Justin Shaibu appealing for the penalty. 00007401.JPGThe whole of the second half was played in constant rain making the surface slippery. The photographs show Jota slipping when striking the ball and ending up horizontal while scoring an excellent penalty. The celebrations speak for themselves.
